Eight black churches have been burned down since the Charleston shootings, and Muslim charities have succeeded in their goal to raise $20,000 in an effort to rebuild them.

At the time of writing the project, launched last Thursday, has raised $21,688 (£14,000) from 495 contributors, making the mean donation in the region of $44.

A statement on the fundraising page said:

All houses of worship are sanctuaries, a place where all should feel safe, a place we can seek refuge when the world is too much to bear.

We are calling on you to help add our support to faith communities across the country pooling their resources to rebuild these churches.

As Muslims we know the importance of protecting the vulnerable and respecting people who call on God in their various tongues.

We must always keep in mind that the Muslim community and the black community are not different communities.

We are profoundly integrated in many ways, in our overlapping identities and in our relationship to this great and complicated country.

Three of the church burnings have been ruled arsons and the others are still under investigation.



"They're being investigated to determine who is responsible and what motives are behind them," FBI spokesman Paul Bresson told BuzzFeed News.

Great initiative, that.

Now where are those critics of Islam who say Muslims and Christians can't live together in peace? If ALL Muslims hated Christians would they donate money so the burned churches could be rebuilt? This exposes the hypocrisy of the so-called "Christians" in the West who so far have done nothing to help their "brothers in Christ."

well, this can't be true. I read that all Muslims are evil. They'll steal your birthday, are covered in scales under their clothes, and their favorite dinner is a casserole made from the souls of crying children. I even read that they hate bunnies.
Did you not read that, too?


In case someone missed it, that was sarcasm.

Very uplifting news! Unfortunately fear and hate mongering articles that are written with the purpose of causing someone feel hate towards someone else are much more common, and also more commonly read and shared among others.

its what sells. Hate mongering has more of a place in our news than the truth does.

News like this is the type that makes me happy to live on this planet, in this country, where we can put aside our differences and unite in the name of peace and love.
